It is the tradition of McDonough Presbyterian that during the seventh- grade year we go through a process called confirmation. It is a time when you have specially called to discover more about your own faith. We will enter a process of spiritual growth that is unique and affirming of who you are and who God calls all of us to be.

At the end of the process, we will have explored theological topics ranging from the Bible, stewardship, social action, baptism and the Lord’s supper. This is a time to ask the tough questions of our faith. What does it mean to be a Christian? What does it mean to be a Presbyterian? Who is God? Does all this church stuff matter? We will not be telling you the right or wrong answer to any of these questions. We will help you discover new and exciting ways of understanding how God is working in your life and in the world. At the end of the process you will be asked if you feel God calling you into membership (don’t worry we will talk more about that and what that means) at McDonough Presbyterian.
